Event: 3rd International Conference on Knowledge Gaps in Parkinson’s Disease & other Movement Disorders
Location: Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, 123 Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
About the Event:
This conference will focus on aspects of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other movement disorders which are still insufficiently understood or have been recently challenged on genetic, pathogenetic, clinical and/or therapeutic grounds. The 3-day symposium will be led by 23 leading young investigators and senior clinical scientists sharing ideas aimed at advancing the clinical and scientific disciplines within our field. Each topic will close with a summary of the knowledge gaps and with a proposal on how to bridge or minimize them.
The conference is geared for physicians and scientists interested in Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders, as an opportunity to update on recent developments and to brainstorm on various research options to advance the field. It is also intended to foster the creation of working groups for international collaborative research projects.

- July 26-31 2015 Gordon Research Conference on Eye Movements
July 25-26 2015 - Gordon Research Symposium on Eye Movements
Bentley University, Waltham MA
Theme: Integrating Perception and Action for Optimal Vision
Fresh perspectives on core oculomotor issues. For the GRC, planned sessions and speakers will explore key issues such as how ocular motility dictates visual perception and, complementarily, how visual perception guides eye movement. The clinical significance of oculomotor control will be featured across multiple sessions in which the oculomotor manifestations of both peripheral and cognitive-level diseased states are examined. Along with the most current conceptual advances, sessions will tie oculomotor behaviors to the latest information on their anatomical, physiological, and computational underpinnings and will include a critical look at the emergence of optogenetic methods and their promise for revealing the neural mechanisms of oculomotor control. The preceding GRS, designed by and for the exclusive benefit of trainees, will feature 10 talks, 2 poster sessions, and a “career” panel discussion.
The GRC application (open to all) includes a call for posters and the GRS application (trainees only) includes a call for posters and talks. All attendees are encouraged to submit their latest work for consideration!

4th International Frontiers in Neurophotonics Symposium
FiNS 2015 will focus on leading edge photonics
approaches and technologies to understand brain
structure and function.
Advances in neuroscience critically hinge on the
development of approaches that enable probing and
controlling cellular and molecular events in live cells
and within the intact brain. Optical approaches are
rapidly becoming central to bridge molecular and
systems neuroscience. This meeting brings together
world leaders in the fields of photonics and
neuroscience and showcases the latest technological
breakthroughs to push further the limits of
experimental, pre-clinical and clinical neuroscience. It
is an exceptional opportunity to catch up with the latest
discoveries and conceptual advances in this field, in a
relaxed and pleasant atmosphere of open discussions.
